Many months ago I was contacted by a super guy named Al over at Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce and asked if I would be willing to accept a couple of bottles of sauce to try and let them know how I liked it. I replied that sure I would be happy to do just that. Al was a man of his word and soon enough two bottles came along in the mail. I gave one to a friend of mine at work, James, to try since he grills meat quite often and enjoys barbecue a lot. I saved the other bottle to try at home. James used his sauce right away and raved about it. I thought ” Good- I’ll have two objective opinions to offer when I post!”
I kept thinking I’d grill something special and use it then, but somehow I kept putting it off and soon there became a little chiding voice at the back of my mind as a busy Summer segued into a busy Autumn. You know – the” You promised to try this and post about it and you are a big welcher!” kind of voice.
I don’t really know what I was thinking. Just one of those “d’oh” things I guess. Well I wish I’d been using it all summer long and that I had the bottle I gave to James back. It’s really very good stuff- that sauce! It has a nice complex flavour with a hint of a molasses to it. Rick and I both enjoyed it very much. We used it as a finishing sauce on grilled chicken, but I can tell it would be great on other meats, potatoes and grilled vegetables as well. I can’t wait to pull some pork for it now.
So- thanks Al and all of you at Country Bob’s- I am sorry I took so long to get around to it. Please add me to your long list of fans. You can be sure I will be savouring the rest of my bottle and hunting up lots more when it is finished.
Our neighbor’s cat, Mew-Mew, was up and over the fence angling for a bit as soon as the chicken hit the grill 🙂
